President Donald Trump is scheduled to arrive in Palm Beach to mostly clear skies Thursday evening with sunshine persistent through the weekend.
But chances of sporadic spring showers could still dampen golf outings and Easter egg hunts.
A high pressure system centered over the Great Lakes is forecast to move northeast gradually through Saturday keeping northeast to easterly winds pushing moisture onshore in South Florida.
That means a slight chance of showers is expected through the next few days with the highest chance Friday night at 40 percent.
It also means strong rip currents along Atlantic beaches. The National Weather Service in Miami has issued a high risk of rip currents that will likely continue as winds stay in the double digits into Sunday with gusts as high as 25 mph Saturday.
“The weather pattern looks to continue to be somewhat active through the forecast period,” Miami meteorologists wrote Thursday. “Mainly, the flow around the high will bring a slight chance to a chance of showers every couple of days.”
How much rain any area will get is unlikely to sate the dry conditions, which have left about 60 percent of Palm Beach County in a moderate drought.
Higher humidity, however, will help reduce the rampant spread of wildfires through the state. On Thursday, about 75 active wildfires were being fought statewide.
The sporadic showers and clouds will keep temperatures slightly below normal for Palm Beach, with a high Friday of 77 degrees, reaching then to 78 Saturday and 79 Sunday.
The hour-by-hour forecast Sunday for Palm Beach shows the highest chances of rain at just 14 percent between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m., dropping to 12 percent after that.
But it will be windy. Sustained winds are expected to be from the east at up to 17 mph by noon with gusts as high as 23 mph.
